Made up holiday? Yes, but I would still like to wish all the dads out there a happy father's day! Take some extra time to be with your family (or get away from them!)

Mine is the NASCAR race at Sonoma. One Of Two road cources for the year.

When you watch NASCAR, you NEVER have to worry about people telling you what happened.

Thanks Again - didn't even realize they were racing a road course today - I will definitely be switching back and forth. The British Grand Prix is also on at 3:00

Well I guess Father's day should be about some quality Couch Time!!

On Children
by Khalil Gibran

Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life moves ever forward and does not linger with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.

Cool

Clementine
Lyrics By: Robert Hunter
Music By: Phil Lesh

Chopped olive sandwiches, roses and wine
Cold ripe persimmons, my sweet Clementine

There's a chill in the meadow, of bottomless time
I go on, I go on, I cannot fill my cup
There's a hole in the bottom, the spring has dried up

I run through the forests of linear time
Chop through the branches and cut through the vines

I'll be back in a moment, though it may take me years
In the lava rock canyons corroded with fears
Of corruptible bodies and grief beyond tears

I'll go on till I hear the sweet voices behind
That I've left for the comfort of cold Clementine

Yes, a Happy Father's Day to all....with a little extra thrown in for those that have made the transition, like myself earlier this year, to that stately position of Grand-Father. :-D

Very cool, JCE. Good job.

Here's to my dad and his fav poem (sorry PC types...he liked to read it to me when I was EIGHT, okay? You know, when you like such stuff!:

"...'E carried me away
To where a dooli lay,
An' a bullet come an' drilled the beggar clean.
'E put me safe inside,
An' just before 'e died,
"I 'ope you liked your drink", sez Gunga Din.
So I'll meet 'im later on
At the place where 'e is gone --
Where it's always double drill and no canteen;
'E'll be squattin' on the coals
Givin' drink to poor damned souls,
An' I'll get a swig in hell from Gunga Din!
Yes, Din! Din! Din!
You Lazarushian-leather Gunga Din!
Though I've belted you and flayed you,
By the livin' Gawd that made you,
You're a better man than I am, Gunga Din!"

That poem - as heard at the end of the classic 1939 movie with Cary Grant, Victor McLaglen, Douglas Fairbanks Jr. trio of swashbuckling awols (well...) and Sam Jaffe in the title role - never fails to bring tears to my eyes.


(the following is from Wiki:)
"Gunga Din" (1892) is one of Rudyard Kipling's most famous poems, a rhyming narrative from the point of view of a British soldier, about a native water-bearer (a "bhisti") who saves the soldier's life but dies himself.
Like several Kipling poems, it celebrates the virtues of a non-European while revealing the racism[?] of a colonial infantryman who views such people as being of a "lower order".
The poem was published as one of the set of martial poems called the Barrack-Room Ballads.

Outstanding...watched it many times with my dad, and then with my three boys.

One of the biggest compliments I ever rec'd was at my wedding when the aging photographer told someone that I looked like DFBanks, jr, in that movie! The person had no clue what he meant, but when they told me what he had said, I was elated...my wife wasn't sure...oh well.

Great Grant performance!

The Summer Solstice demands a show played where the sun is out all day. One of the best Sugarees of the '80's and one of the better audience recordings available. One of the books I read said Jerry never left his hotel room, but nevertheless, he was on for this show (and the day before)
